state average. those numbers from 2000 to 2008. it's long been known that breast cancer risk factors include behaviors that tend to be among higher income women. taking certain replacements or having no or fewer children and later in life. but it's a correlation, not a cause. although effective at the start, new research finds the whooping cough vaccine wears off over time. the 2010 whooping cough outbreak sickened 9,000 people, killing ten infants. it prompted a closer look to the effectiveness. it loses power over the years, leaving children 7 to 10 more susceptible. 30,000 whooping cough cases have been reported this year in the united states. >> most of the time they will ask you to take a booster shot. let's bring in jeff.
